The Vision of the Flying Scroll
1I looked up again. And I saw a flying scroll.
2The angel asked me, “What do you see?”
I answered, “I see a flying scroll. It is 30 feet long and 15 feet wide.”
3And he said to me, “This is the curse that will go all over the land. One side says every thief will be sent away. The other side says everyone who makes false promises will be sent away. 4The Lord of heaven’s armies says, ‘I will send it to the houses of thieves. I will also send it to those who use my name to make false promises. The scroll will stay in that person’s house. And it will destroy the house with its wood and stones.’”
The Vision of the Woman
5Then the angel who was talking with me came forward. He said to me, “Look up and see what is coming.”
6I asked, “What is it?”
He answered, “It is a measuring basket.” He also said, “It stands for the people’s sins in all the land.”
7Then the lid made of lead was raised. There was a woman sitting in the basket. 8The angel said, “The woman stands for wickedness.” Then he pushed her back into the basket. And he put the lid back down.
9Then I looked up. I saw two women. They had wind in their wings. Their wings were like those of a stork. They lifted up the basket into the sky.
10I spoke to the angel who was talking with me. I asked, “Where are they taking the basket?”
11He answered, “They are going to Babylonia. They will build a temple for it. When the temple is ready, they will set the basket there in its place.”
